    Pros

    I was in a good department where my colleagues became good friends. I enjoyed my time in this company and would definitely recommend to those looking for either part time or full time employment.

    Cons

    Dealing with rude customers. It is unavoidable when you are in a customer service based industry. It will test your patience but there is nothing you can do. It is the nature of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Your associates have great ideas. It would be good to consider their opinions as it may help achieve target sales.
